Just the other day I was chatting about 'old' scrapbook supplies that I hoped wouldn't disappear completely...vellum was on that list! And sure enough, when I hit the garden and the gallery looking for other scrappers using sheer techniques, there was plenty of lovely stuff to discover! I love plain old vellum as well as funky new products like the sheers from KI Memories...it's halfway between patterned paper and clear acrylic. Perfect for showing a little something but not everything, and it's pretty much as easy as attaching one piece of paper to another! Attach it with clear adhesive or use brads, stitches or staples and leave the glue behind entirely.
Shannon Tidwell put the sheer delights to use as a pocket. Love the mix of dots and letters!
The always adorable GluestickGirl layered all these adorable bits and pieces on top of a sheer background. Now I'm loving polka dots with trees! Are you spotting a pattern?
Can you spot the sheer strip on this layout by Jamie Waters? Super cute.
This layout from my gallery has a stitched vellum pocket holding all sorts of little things that might otherwise overwhelm the pale colours of the page. The vellum is just enough to tone down the bright colours and make them match.
And Tracy Miller's super cute Christmas goodies mix sheer loveliness with a flurry of snowflakes! And she didn't have to worry about ahdesive at all, as the sheer layer is the background!
Have any sheer favourites in the gallery that you want to point out? Link us up in the comments!
